Miami Oct.30, 2012 — The U.S. Commercial Service, a trade promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce, in cooperation with the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC), has invited Pan Am International Flight Academy, a global aviation training company headquartered in Miami, Florida, to participate in a joint Aviation Trade Mission next month in Beijing, China.

The trade mission delegation including Pan Am and other select U.S. companies within the aviation sector, will participate in China’s largest aviation trade show, being held November 7th – 14th in four cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Zhuhai.

Delegates will join the U.S. Pavilion at the Zhuhai Airshow and participate in prescreened one-on-one meetings and networking sessions with Chinese partners and key aviation decision-makers from the Chinese government and industry. These include the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC), the Civil Aviation Industry of China (AVIC), Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), as well as key maintenance, repair and overhaul MROs like AMECO, GAMECO and MTU.

China is the world’s fastest growing civil aviation sector and is expected to add 5,000 new aircraft valued at $600 billion over the next 20 years. Commercial opportunities exist in multiple sectors, including tier‐one suppliers, niche‐parts manufacturing, airport design/construction, pilot and mechanic training and general aviation.

Participants will attend the Zhuhai Airshow, enhancing their profile at the only international aerospace trade show in China endorsed by the Chinese central government. The Zhuhai Airshow boasts attendees from over 600 companies from 35 countries, including the countries largest airlines, plus more than 100,000 trade visitors..

Pan Am International Flight Academy has been invited as one of a few qualified training academies certified to teach and produce qualified pilots flying within CAAC airspace. The company has over 80 years of experience in aviation training as the original training division of Pan American Airways and is a global leader, training governments and airlines personnel from around the world. Pan Am has the largest, most diverse fleet of full-motion jet simulators in the world.

Captain Gregory Darrow, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing for Pan Am, a member of the U.S. delegation states: “ China aviation is booming. The Chinese government and private carriers can’t keep up with growth demands for more planes and qualified pilots. The government is slowly moving away from long-held traditional training requirements and beginning to see the value and advantages of more modern practices including full-motion simulator time. We are pleased that Pan Am has been invited to participate in this trade mission and has been so enthusiastically welcomed for our training options and capabilities in the region.”   

The company provides CAAC Type Rating Training, Airline Crew Training, Cabin Crew Training, Dispatcher Training, Aircraft Maintenance Training, ATC Training, and Aviation English Training.

Sept 19, 2011, MIAMI —  Pan Am International Flight Academy is a scheduled stop for the much anticipated “Worldwide Family Reunion” of former Pan Am Employees being held October 20 – 23, 2011 in Miami, Florida.

Former employees, friends and family of Pan Am International Flight Academy’s founding airline, Pan American Airways, affectionately known as Pan Am, together with aviation aficionados from all over the globe and every division of the company, are expected to attend the reunion being held in the Dinner Key/Coconut Grove area of Miami. Attendees will be celebrating the Centennial of Aviation in Miami as they honor the enormous part the airline played in shaping aviation history while also marking 20 years since the close of one of the country’s most iconic pioneering companies.

Interest in “Pan Am” is at an all-time high. Along with the noteworthy rise and continued success of the former airline’s only remaining division, Pan Am International Flight Academy – providing training solutions worldwide, there is the much-anticipated ABC network television series “Pan Am,” and the musical “Catch Me If You Can” is now running on Broadway.

Pan Am International Flight Academy president Vito Cutrone enthusiastically welcomes former fellow employees: “…In many ways we are all part of a very special family with an aviation legacy second to none… Speaking of his own personal experience as a former Pan Am Airways pilot, managing director and head of its training division, Mr. Cutrone said: “…Working for Pan Am was an amazing experience!  It wasn’t unusual to be treated as if you were the U. S. Ambassador to the country you happened to be in…. such was the respect the airline had throughout the world.”  Pan Am intends to receive this special group with open arms and provide tours of its facilities and operations, which include over 19 different types of full-flight jet simulators.

The Pan Am Airways Memorabilia Store located within Pan Am International Flight Academy campus at the Miami International Airport, features a combination of original items, reproductions and new products adorned with the Pan Am logo that are difficult to find anywhere else. The Staff of the Pan Am Store are all original Pan Am employees and have a wealth of knowledge about the airline.

Other reunion events include a “Hangar Party,” to be held in the historic Coast Guard Hangar on the shores of Biscayne Bay in Dinner Key which the original Pan Am Clippers once called home during its pioneering days of aviation, as well as tours of the special exhibit “Aviation in Miami: The First 100 Years” at HistoryMiami in downtown Miami.
